Old Man's Canggu, Bali

March 08, 2018 edit


Who’s missing the good vibes in this place?

If you’re staying in Canggu chances are you’re going to spend a whole lot of your budget down at Old Man’s. The beachfront beer garden, which got it’s name from the surf break out front at Batu Bolong beach, is the perfect place to chill out after a day in the sun and surf. The atmosphere is casual, relaxed and friendly, just like Canggu in general. Everyone is welcomed, even dogs if they’re on a leash. It’s open daily from 7am until late, so you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner and sunset drinks.

The items on the menu ranges from local dishes like nasi goreng and curry, healthy options like muesli and salads, BBQ, burgers and pub grub like fish & chips. My favorite is definitely the lime granita, it’s the perfect way to cool down on hot sunny days. Prices are somewhat high compared to other places in Canggu, but what you pay for is really the fun vibe and stunning views. Cocktails are around 85k, small Bintangs 25k and the food ranging from 40k up to 180k for the black angus sirloin steak . It’s a simple concept, you order and pay at the cashier, collect your drinks from the bar and the food will be brought to your table.

Aussie artist Lucas Grogan is the man behind the vibrant blue murals Old Man’s is known for. The interior is an eclectic mix of wooden communal tables, plush couches, bean bags and colorful umbrellas. The is open concept throughout so you get a great view of the surf and shimmering grey sands of Batu Bolong beach.

Be sure to get down to Old Man’s on Dirty Ol’ Wednesdays for the beer pong challenge and a “dirty disco”. Enjoy live music on Fridays and different DJs on Salty Sundays which start at 5pm. Later in the evening the crowds usually head up to Deus ex Machina to dance the night away at their Sunday Session with live bands. On the last Saturday of every month Old Man’s host a market where the island creatives show up to sell their handicrafts, vintage clothing and fresh produce. You don’t want to miss it!
